A message from the author, David Baddiel;

David Baddiel said: “So I’ve signed a new deal with Harper Collins to do four more kids books, because it turns out I really love writing them - and none more so than The Taylor Turbochaser, my new story about Amy Taylor, a disabled petrolhead 11 year old, who’s inventor best friend pimps her wheelchair-ride into the most incredible roadster - and then she and her gang take it on the wildest road trip. Hopefully, there’s something in there for everyone, from eight-year-old Jodie Kidds to 13-year-old Jeremy Clarksons.”

The Taylor Turbochaser Synopsis

It's the latest Brilliant Blockbuster from best-selling Baddiel! A non-stop thrill-ride adventure that will have readers young and old racing to the finishing line.

The Taylor Turbochaser is a road-trip rollercoaster... with a twist. At its heart is the unforgettable Amy Taylor. Amy loves cars, and dreams of being a driver. But there's a major catch: her slow old wheelchair with its broken wheel. When Amy finally gets a new electric one, it's exciting... at first. But standard engines only have so much power. And that's where Rahul comes in - Amy's best friend and genius inventor. Soon Rahul turns a wheelchair into... a supercar! And so the Taylor Turbochaser is born. But when it all goes suddenly wrong Amy is going to have to hit the road - and drive...
